Who is Peter Byrne?
Hello quilters, my name is Peter Byrne.
I am a national & international award-winning, published modern quilter and teacher with a deep passion for innovation and design. My strength is maintaining a fresh approach to quilting, with original designs and technical mastery.
My goal is innovation, my passion is creativity, and I am thrilled to have opportunities to share new techniques within the quilting community. I’m presently offering 3 workshops to share my love of quilting. Workshop information can be found on my website at www.peterbquilts.com
While attending QuiltCon 2020, my quilt titled ‘Starring You’ won Best in Show and my quilt titled ‘Cityscape’ won Best Machine Quilting Frameless and at QuiltCon 2023, my quilt titled ‘Spool Dash’ won a Judges Choice award!
After 30 years working as a stylist and salon owner I retired, and then had the time to explore new creative outlets. In 2017, I joined the Toronto Modern Quilting Guild and when I walked into my first guild meeting, I had never quilted a quilt.
It was at this time, I became a full-time student of the craft and 2 years later, I designed and made Starring You. I’m very excited to share my quilts, dreams and ambitions with you and look forward to meeting you at The Quilt Show!
